There is no doubt in the fact that the registration number of a vehicle is important for some people. While many choose the numbers based on their numerology, many others choose the numbers to convert them into words. Many RTOs in India allow the customers to choose the registration numbers from a pool of numbers available with them. However, there are certain special numbers that are reserved for bidding and the buyers will need to shell out extra money to get the registration number and sport that on their vehicles. Various RTOs in India hold auctions every month and earn some extra money. Here are a few number plates in India that are the most expensive ones.
